This is a good initiative if it is not tampered with by the government. This was done in Egypt, but the government later blocked it. India government snubbed the Offer from Facebook. The question is will Nigerian Government block this development later in the future?
The founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg took to his page yesterday to announce Free Basic Internet in Nigeria. In his words,
"Today we're partnering with Airtel Africa to launch
Internet.org Free Basics in Nigeria.
There's a lot of innovation across Africa right now, and
Nigeria in particular is home to a lot of talented developers.
…Free Basics offers Nigerians, including 90 million people who are currently offline, the opportunity to access news, health information and services like Jobberman that were built by Nigerians and other developers across West Africa — all without having to pay for data.
Free Basics is now live in more than 40 countries, and half of. those are in Africa."
In other words, you can browse the internet free of charge without any data charge using your airtel sim.
